    You'd reduce the maximum speed and drive to the conditions accordingly?

    If you're moving slowly enough with a gap large enough for another vehicle to safely move into it and overtake another vehicle, you're probably in the wrong lane?

    If you're approaching a slower moving vehicle and want to overtake it safely, how are you managing to get hemmed in by 'slow overtakers'? By that very logic, the vehicle overtaking you is moving faster than you?

    Doesn't google maps just provide a moving atlas which means it does not provide turn by turn navigation?

    No, it has full navigation capabilities and is "live" too so it responds to traffic events.

    Thanks for that. If the inbuilt screen happened to be higher up I might give it a try, but its too far out of line of sight for my liking. I guess I've just become so used over the last decade to having my navigation screen high up (but not impeding the view out) and portrait oriented that anything else does not seem to offer me an equally usable approach.

    Picked up my new (to me) Passat on Friday and was surprised to discover it didnít have the option of Ďnormalí cruise along with ACC, I drove a Q2 courtesy car a couple of months back that definitely had both fitted along with the limiter.

    In the main it wonít be an issue, the only time I suspect it will be is when towing our caravan on hills whilst maintaining momentum; people have a habit of cutting back in front of you at quite close proximity - however, it also maintains the set speed when changing gear which will be a definite bonus. I will have to get used to getting on the throttle as people pass me.

    Got to say though, our new Passat is simply a wonderful piece of kit - very nice indeed.

    Just a FYI that the adaptive cruise control has an 'undertaking restriction' which means if it detects a slower car in the lane to the right of you it will slow down and prevent you from undertaking it. You can override this by pressing the accelerator or pressing 'RES' on your steering wheel.

    However, if this annoys you it can be turned off using VCDS.

    I noticed it does this which is a pain in flowing traffic but didn’t realise it could be overcome through hitting resume, thanks for that

    It also notices that cars cutting in front of you are going quicker and doesn’t immediately increase the gap through braking, which is also a bonus when towing.
